During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

Text Information

First Line: Immaculate mother, we come at thy call


Immaculate Mother. [B. V. M.] This is in the Parochial Hymn Book of the Rev. A. Police, Boston, U.S., 1897, No. 228, entitled "Hymn in honour of our Lady of Lourdes." In Tozer's Catholic Hymns, 1898, it begins "Immaculate Mary" and is marked as a translation from the French. The tune in both cases is the Lourdes "Ave Maria" tune, but the words are in no sense a translation of the Lourdes hymn (Pelerinage National, 1899, p. 214, beginning "L'heure etait venue,") and do not suggest a French original. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
